In case you don’t know, my husband and I have a French bulldog. Here’s our girl:(Who can resist those ears???) She is just one year old and is our first dog together. Neither of us have had a dog since we were teens. In addition to all the general puppy knowledge we’ve remembered or learned over the past year, we are also learning what Frenchie and bully behavior is. Fortunately, we have some friends who are long-time Frenchie owners and breeders who have helped us out so much in this department.
Happy Thanksgiving - I'm thankful for my latest book, released last week. Plus I'm giving away a free copy to a lucky entrant. Check out the blog for details!
About two hours from Tampa Bay or Orlando, Micanopy's numerous antique shops reside in a quaint, old-Florida neighborhood under a canopy of Spanish moss. A couple of nice places to eat and a stroll amid whatnots from days gone by is a nice break from the hubbub of the big city and the amusement parks.
Continuing the series of inexpensive daytrips near the Tampa Bay, Florida, area, this week I present the murals on the Mazzaro Italian Market buildings in St. Petersburg. When you have out-of-town visitors and don't know what to do with them, treat them and yourself to an interesting, photographable destination that is cheap and uncomplicated. Plus, buy my books and blog gear to fulfill your holiday shopping list!
